Swedish festival + Alan: "I hate festivals, they're for hippies"

GLASGOW - Ahahaha the legend is back, talking as Noel did: "fucking hippies", lol. And Liam too, time ago: "they should wash".
Yesterday Beady Eye announced they will be at the Hultsfred Festival in Sweden this summer and I was thinking to go (because it's interesting: Suede, White Lies, Primal Scream - their song "Kill all hippies" was ironic), but then immediately, as usual, a Swedish girl (with a hippy lifestyle) behaved in a nonsense way, she used to be very friendly but then they're totally full of racist stereotypes about Italians (I noticed the same in Norwegian people), they clearly suffer from inferiority complexes, having a shite weather, shite food and have to drink a lot to stay warm, so to forget their absence of brain. These things, weather-food-drinking, influence very much the life of a person.
I remember another one, Isabella, a Swedish model interested in festivals (she was coming to Rome for a festival with White Lies-Franz Ferdinand-Killers) who behaved the same, and she used to like a foreign "bloody rocker" insulting her and stalking her on "social networks", very social.
Time ago another one, called as me, Anna Nelson (but as Liam said: I'm called Lisa now ahaha), was afraid to come to Italy again because she was on holidays at the seaside in South Italy and a guy tried to flirt with her in the street (I've never seen this in Milan), and this fact shocked her life. In cold Sweden they flirt through messages. Or just with bloody rockers stalking them through a computer.
The times of La Dolce Vita (1960) seem very far away, when the Swedish sex bomb Anita Ekberg was coming to Italy and was the one shocking Latin lovers and paparazzi.

Hats off to Alan McGee, he’s not a man to mince his words.
In Glasgow for the Film Festival showing of Upside Down: The Creation Records Story - a documentary film about McGee’s record label that brought the world the likes of The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream and Oasis – he took time out to give his thoughts on the current state of the music industry. One band dominated the conversation: Glasvegas.
“Glasvegas are amazing.”
Clearly passionate about the talents of the Glasgow rockers he continued: “Glasvegas were telling me they might be pipped at the post for the no.1 slot by Katie B, but I don’t even know who she is. I’m not much of an authority on anything anymore. I’m just a guy who likes the Beatles.”
Mark Gardener, the singer and guitarist with Ride who features in the film, now works as a music producer. He said: “There’s one hell of a challenge for interesting bands to get heard but it’s like anything, you stick with it and hopefully in time you get noticed.”
McGee agreed: “It changed around 2000 because Glasvegas, if you take them as an example, if anybody’s watching this that gives a shit, don’t give in.
“They started in 2003, I found them in 2006, they got a record deal in 2008 and now they’re fighting Katie B for no. 1.
“But maybe it should be that difficult, maybe you should mean it that much and they (Glasvegas) do mean it.”
It’s impossible to interview Alan McGee and not bring up the subject of Oasis, although he was keen to point out that he only agreed to the making of Upside Down if it wasn’t some backhanded way of making an Oasis doc, but nevertheless, he gave his thoughts on Liam Gallagher’s new band, Beady Eye.
I’ve ordered the album, what more can I say. I’m big mates with Andy (Bell) obviously.
“I thought they were unfairly criticised for that first song Bring the Light, I thought it was pretty good. I am dying to hear the album.
Since the infamous Oasis / Gallagher brothers split, has McGee taken sides?
I am told I am in Noel’s camp. I am in nobody’s camp. I am in the music camp.
“I am not in Liam’s camp or Noel’s camp I want them both to be great.”
So will he be heading along to RockNess this summer to support his beloved Glasvegas or see Liam and Beady Eye in action at T in the Park?
“I hate festivals, they are for hippies.” 
That will be a no then.
